Here are some more additions to The Best Sites To Learn About The Recession:
An audio slideshow from The New York Times called In Economic Vise, Pontiac Struggles.
There Goes Retirement is an online video from The Wall Street Journal.
The progressive magazine The Nation has a useful slideshow called The Great Recession. It’s a bit ideological, but provides a different kind of analysis and response to the recession. It also includes links to articles that would not be accessible to ELL’s. However, the images, teacher modifications of the articles, and lesson ideas provided by them could offer some good opportunities for student discussion and higher order thinking.
